Hillel International is the largest organization serving the needs of Jewish college and university students on over 550 campuses worldwide. For nearly a century, Hillel’s network of dedicated student leaders, professionals and volunteers have encouraged generations of young adults to celebrate Jewish learning and living, pursue social justice (tikkun olam and tzedek) and connect to their peers and the global Jewish people. By participating in life-changing trips and campus initiatives, students learn to make a meaningful impact on the future of the Jewish people and the world while they grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Hillel engages with and inspires the leadership of more Jewish college students than all other endeavors combined. 

Mission: Enriching the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.

Vision: We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning and Israel.
